Internationaler (englischsprachiger) Masterstudiengang Structural Chemistry and Spectroscopy


The consecutive International Master Study introduces advanced methods in spectroscopy and the structure exploration of chemical and biochemical compounds (bio-polymers, esp.). The insight in structural aspects, structural spectroscopic investigations, and synthesis of complex substances constitute the major focus of the programme.

The study is based on applied research, which means students should work and think independently in a research context. In order to ensure international scientific contacts and co-operations, the programme language is English.


The study programme is laid out for two years (4 semesters) with overall 120 ECTS credit points. One credit point corresponds to a mean workload of 30 hours. The study can also be completed in part-time (4 years, 30 credit point per year).

Up to 60 credit points may be acquired abroad. This is recommended but lies in the student’s own responsibility and requires prior consultations. For comparison, see the ASC master study programme where international mobility is mandatory.
